how the hell is this even gonna go down....is roy coming down in weight or is bernard going up or are they meeting in between? I think Roy isnt gonna win if he drops the weight. I think its gonna be to hard for him to fight.

bernard is going up to LH
12-26-2005, 02:59 PM #5
not a good move.....i have no desire to see this fight. I heard Jones Tarver 4 was coming later in the year, I have even less than none desire to see that fight.

Could be.....you have some very good points in there....its just why in the very first tarver-Johnson fight did he look terrible...everyone was baffled...everyone including myself attributed it to the weight loss he had to endure after becoming a heavyweight. Then the next fight he got knocked out against tarver. Then the next fight against johnson he looked even worse than his first fight against tarver. I gave it to Jones when he looked bad against tarver figuring it was the weight loss but that disappeared when he repeated the same thing against johnson. But not only that i think he tried so hard against tarver the third fight but he just didnt have it. Honestly I just think his skills declined rather quickly....it happens all the time to boxers. In my opinion it happened to Lennox Lewis. He didnt fight for a full year before he fought Klitschko, and Vitali took the fight on 2 weeks notice and put Lewis through one of the hardest fought quickest pace matches he ever fought. Lewis claimed over and over and over that he wasnt in shape for the fight making excuses etc, but then promptly retires when Klitschko is pushing very hard for a rematch he was going to recieve. Lewis himself realized that even if he was out of shape like he claims his skills fell so far compared to how they were just one year ago. Why would Jones have demons when he became the heavyweight champion only a few months prior? Why did he put up such a garbage fight against tarver the first time, why did he get his clock cleaned the second fight, why did Johnson simply destroy him in their fight and why did Jones get beaten decisively again in another fight with Tarver. It's the age thats doing it. He's got well over 50 fights under his belt and he's been boxing since he was a kid. In MMA Igor Vovchanchyn was one of the fiercest competitors of his day knocking people out left and right going 27-1 at one point, but the guy has been getting his ass handed to him repeatedly by people in weight classes lower than he fights, and he is only 33! It;s cuz he's been in the game too long and the skills wore away and the game left him behind, which is what I think happened to jones.
Whew i'm done. You make some great points tho bro I wont deny that. It makes for a good discussion.

If this fight goes ahead its because both fighters have no where to go they have both been beeten in there last few fights....but both have very good reputation in there previous years of boxing...i wouldnt mind betting these 2 boxers have got together and said WE CAN DO THIS WE CAN SET UP A FIGHT AND WE KNOW WE CAN SELL ******TICKETS****** ...and what do tickets make *****MONEY***** that is all this fight is about making a couple of xtra bucks before they retire.
Lets be honest Who realy thinks hopkins is gonna jump up 2 wieghts and it to be his advantage....its a complete joke.
The boxing boards should get together and say this is a ****ing joke THIS IS BOXING NOT A ****ING CIRCUS FOR OVER THE HILL CHAMPIONS.
There are boxers out there who want to fight the best but cant because of shit like this REMATCH AFTER REMATCH iether that or to amazingly past boxers fighting eachother.
Theres no way in a million years i will pay to view to fill there pockets when theres boxers out there still waiting for that one big fight.

Jones was toying with tarver in part 3. it was so clear. jones will beat b-hop and tarver.

When Jones faught glen he was way out of shape and flabby as hell. I had never seen his back look that terrible before. I dont know what he was doing that fight. I watched the knock downa million times johnson never hit him roy just fell (look at the fight if you can find it). Something is wrong with roy, I have heard about him having ties to the mafia and all types of shit, but his last fight was very wierd. Rounds 1-3 he just stood there and did nothing then in 4-5 he beat the shit out of tarver, 6-12 he just stopped punching, why? Can somebody explain that. As for bernard he is taking a chance by jumping up in weight. He atleast still has a fighters spirit unlike jones with his lame grin. if jones fights he will take hop out just like he could do anyone, but if he does that bullshit like his last few fights. ohwell.

Its goona be one hell of a fight either way

Why would jones come into a fight out of shape if a fight like that was extremely important. That was to be his bounce back fight to show he still got it but he failed miserably in every aspect. The second fight with tarver was no straight punch either. It caught him on the chin some what but we've seen many many many many many boxers get caught a lot worse than that and shake it off right away. But it was lights out with Roy. Just like with Johnson.....it didnt look like a huge punch but it caught him right on the temple and it was lights out again. Some punches are right on the button. The saying "button" is exactly what it simulates. When someone gets hit right on the "button" its like someone hit a button to turn them off like a light switch.

when is the rematch?

Not to say bernard is def gonna win. I think I'd favor jones in this fight to be honest, the weight on hopkins isnt gonna help and jones has fought at this weight for a while now.

I agree with almost everything you said there, you're certqainly no blind fan which was what I was afraid of at first. Only argument here is I def agree Jones won the first fight by a close enough margin that there was def a thought in peoples minds after the fight that they havent seen roy jones challenged like that in years IF EVER. His showing wasn't that good by his own admission. This first fight is the key to why I think Jones skills declined rather than a confidence problem. Not to say any of us are right are wrong, we both possess great points on this. In the 3rd fight with Tarver, yes he did some showboating but I just think it was a ploy by Jones to make people think he's still got it when in his own mind he doesnt think so. He did give Tarver a great amount of respect like you said, maybe to much, but then Tarver caught him again and Jones was almost knocked out for a 3rd time in 3 fights. Who the hell knows, I do think he'll take a decision with Hopkins tho. Could be we're both right and his skills are declining because of a confidence problem.

Seems like this bullshit talk of a fight will be postponed or even scrapped as there is not enough money in the fight.
